YMMV: Ned Stark Lives
- Holy Shit Quotient: Part III, Chapter 9. Melisandre awakens a stone dragon, Jaqen H'ghar stabs her and saves Gendry, Arya and Ser Davos, the stone dragon eats Melisandre alive and flies away, and all of this is happening as the Dragonstone volcano is in eruption!
- Romantic Plot Tumor: Arya and Gendry's relationship can be seen as this by some fans.
- Gets subverted after Gendry gets arrested at White Harbor by Stannis's men. The news of their marriage leaked out in a big way and Ned is out of action. To add to the drama, Arya goes on an eerily-familiar name chanting mantra...
- Also Sandor and Sansa's relationship has become this for reviewers as of the third part owing to a lack of build-up and reason.
